’Tis the season to give back.
Giving back is something that came easily to our founder, George Jenkins. He attributed much of his success to donating time and money to numerous charities and community organizations, and to investing in his own employees. And so we honor his legacy by continuing to give back and encouraging our own friends, family, and customers to do the same.
One way we do this is through our annual Food For All campaign. Each year, we collect $1, $3, and $5 donations at checkout to help fight hunger and promote self-sufficiency in our communities. In 2016, we raised a total of $5.5 million for Food For All. We hope to exceed that in 2017, giving families in need access to nourishing meals and opportunities to thrive. Thanks to your generosity, we can continue to provide support year after year.
So the next time you shop this holiday season, look out for our cards at checkout and give the gift of charity this season. We think “Mr. George” would be proud.
